June 5th : THE WEBSHOP IS OPEN but please be advised that I may have to close it again if it becomes too busy.
I apologise for the inconvenience; this isn't ideal for anyone but I am still unable to deal the volume of trade at the moment and I don't feel that it is fair to take money for orders and then keep people waiting a long time for their plants so I'm only accepting enough that I can deal within a reasonable time.
We've been growing plants here in Devon for more than 30 years but don't be fooled into thinking that the climate will make our plants soft and tender; we are nearly 1000 feet above sea level on the edge of Dartmoor and in a 'normal' season would expect to get 45 inches of rain a year. Temperatures in the winter can fall to below -8 Centrigrade so we think it quite likely that most of our plants will go on to more favourable climes!
Both bumble bees and honeybees love the flowers of thyme. Here is Thymus Coccineus, a form of our native wild thyme which has brilliant deep purplish red flowers in June which smother the flat mats of creeping leaves. Forming a low covering, Thymus Coccineus is ideal for planting beside paving, in tubs or at the front of the border in a sunny position.

PLEASE NOTE: JUNE 5th: THE WEBSHOP IS OPEN but please be advised that I may have to close it again if it becomes too busy.
We are very busy at the moment and I am only taking the number of orders that I can deal with in one week. I apologise for the inconvenience but I don't like keeping customers waiting for their plants; I hope you will understand.
